Well all we can say is SUPERB. Lovely location away from it all. We stayed in the gothic room which was an interesting experience with its different decor. They have thought of everything, with tea, coffee and hot chocolate in your room.You can even borrow dvds to watch if you want to. The gardens are just perfect and I did try to get them to come and do mine!! The owners were so cheery it made you feel the same. Round each twist and turn in the cottage there was another surprise waiting, not least Dave`s wall in trubute to the wonderful Bob Marley. Breakfast was FANTASTIC, we werent hurried or rushed. The food was freshly cooked to order and the portions were fab!! The staffordshire oatcake was a lovely touch. Nothing was too much trouble. It was lovely having both orange and apple juice and fresh water served too!! All we can say is THANK YOU SO MUCH. You made our cycling trip GREAT.

Room Tip: Lovely quiet location.

Three friends and I stayed one night at Windy Arbour in September 2012 during a two day visit to Alton Towers theme park. We have a fantastic time and could not recommend the place highly enough. The hotel is accessed via some narrow but quiet country lanes and is set stop a small hill, with wonderful views of the surrounding fields. We stayed in the ‘Japanese’ and ‘Library rooms’ within the old farmhouse, which were clean, tidy and comfortable, like the rest of the hotel. The owners, Dave and Gill, were friendly and accommodating without being overbearing. They recommended a fantastic pub for dinner and even offered to collect us in the evening due to the lack of local taxis. Breakfast the following day was fantastic and much needed after a late night at the aforementioned pub! We would definitely go back

We booked the Peacock cottage for 5 of us during our Alton Towers trip - was easy to find using the satnav and the place was really well kept. Everywhere was tidy and the garden looked nice.

The Peacock cottage was perfect - lots of space and clean. The owners were very friendly. The cottage is perfect if your heading to Alton Towers - it's about a 5-10 minute drive away.

If your looking for a really good place to stay at good value then look no further!

We stayed last weekend whilst visiting Alton Towers, what a treat! It was a lovely stay from start to finish. The hosts dave & gill were very welcoming and friendly and very interesting to chat with. The rooms were good with lots books and reading materials, lovely linens with spotlessly clean bathroom and throughout. Had a great view out across the wheat field, a delightful sight on a beautiful sunny morning. Breakfast was fantastic with such a vast choice, served in the fab conservatory overlooking the stunning gardens. Everything about the place was simply delightful. The whole of the property is beautiful, homely and is a joy to be in and around. We only wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the outside space too. I will deffo be booking again but will probably try one of the self catering barns next time. Thanks For helping us end our summer hols with a great stay with impeccable hospitality including the best full breakfast I've had in a very long time. First class !

We stayed here to be able to visit a few places in Staffordshire, Alton Towers being the primary (2 adults and 2 children, 12 and 9).The location is off the beaten track, literally, which is great if you want peace and quiet, which we did.
The accomodation was comfortable and certainly different. The stay was not without its problems however, Gill and Dave were exceptionally helpfull and understanding. Thank you.
As Dave writes in the literature found in the accomodation "You could stay in a travelodge, but that would be boring!" Indeed it would be.
Small and personal places like this should be supported as much as possible. Make sure you pay them a visit if you are planning to stay in the area.

Room Tip: Dove Cottage is the best!

Brilliant BB. This was my husbands first experience of a B&B and what a high standard has been set! We had booked the Library room for 1 night for a visit to Alton Towers with the family. Arrived quite late and were dog tired after a long day of rides, welcomed and showed to our lovely room very quickly! Out like a light in the comfy bed and the breakfast was divine! Great start to the day overlooking the beautiful garden. Easy checkout, wished it was longer!!

Lovely setting and a really welcoming couple- sorry its taken so long for a review Dave & Gill!

We were staying, like most people, to visit Alton Towers and had a fantastic time. Our room was full of books and was comfortable, clean and well presented. Great to relax in after a hectic day of rollercoasters.

The breakfast was delicious and overall we very much enjoyed our stay. Look forward to seeing the Browns again soon.
